I was brought up in the country, 10 minutes away from a tiny town. I guess that’s why I love the city from a distance. I love the hustle and bustle, the city lights, the sights and smells, but I love coming home. Home to the water, the sand and the quiet. In all the years of my life I’ve always lived near a bay or a lake. The beach has been a part of my life since I turned 3.
